Television stations and broadcast media outlets are always seeking top talent for positions such as news anchor, reporter, producer, sportscaster, and meteorologist.
However, breaking into the news business is tough and having the right relationships makes all the difference. If you are exploring a career in television news media, or, are right at the precipice of needing an experienced TV news agent for representation then you will want to consider the following:
4 Tips for Hiring the Right TV News Agent
Tip #1 – Always consider hiring an agent with a rich and extensive background in major market and or Network TV News. A News Director or an EP who have been decision makers can be great choices.
Tip #2 – Hire someone who will give you honest feedback from the get go. You don’t need stroking, you need guidance and suggestions on how to get better. A TV news agent who fears insulting you is the wrong choice for you.
Tip #3 – Don’t be concerned about the size of market you want to get to as much as whether it is a good stepping stone station for future jobs. A good agent will help you map out your moves.
Tip #4 – Call people represented by an agent you are interested in and find out if that agent calls back in a timely fashion or more importantly reaches out to his or her clients on a regular basis.
